Gold medal Olympian Suni Lee and pop star JoJo Siwa will be among the new celebrity cast of Dancing with the Stars. ABC made the announcement Thursday during their Television Critics Association presentation.
Lee and Siwa will appear live on Good Morning America Friday, while the remaining celebrity dancers will be revealed on Wednesday, September 8.
Siwa — who came out as a member of the LGBTQ+ community in January — will become the first contestant to be matched with a same-sex partner. In a promo clip, the 18-year-old said, “I am so excited to be a part of Dancing with the Stars, Season 30, and to be dancing with a girl…I think it’s so cool.”
The gymnast and the pop star and influencer, and the rest of the TBA stars, will be hoofing it when DWTS returns for its 30th season on Monday, September 20 at 8 p.m.
